Telnet into a D-Link router with the following message: Could not open connection to the host, on port 23. No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

Do I need prior configuration, before I can Telnet and see the status of the router?

Are you sure the router has telnet capability? Most are configured using HTTP.

It may not, and I did use http for basic config, but I use telnet on Cisco routers on a big network. I wanted to see if I could monitor and check port configuration on this D-link.

Most of them have a setting for web administration so you can access it's config from anywhere using a web browser.

You will normally only be able to access the web interface locally if you are on the same network. If you are using an IP address other than 192.168.0.x you will not be able to access the web interface.

Unless you have bridging to the 192.168.0.xx subnet. :)
